--^---@Feeding the Meter--^---@

Many of us living in towns where we must pay for street-side parking meters, find the alloted time at the meters too short to run all the errands we have in a given day. The other day I parked at a meter and ran off to do my errands. I was gone over 30 minutes. Fearing a ticket on my window, I ran back to my car. Someone had paid the meter, and put a very nice note on my windshield asking me to do the same for someone else sometime. I was very moved by this simple act. Now I will often look for other cars with an expired meter and put the coins in to give that shopper a little relief from the meter patrols. I had heard of this act being done before. But when it happened to me it really made me think. I guess the small ways we effect one another really do make a difference.
